Thank you soo much for your help you guys! With a little encouragement, I have decided that the best thing for me to do is rehome her because, being my first horse and all, I know I need a little bit more experienced before I can take her up to the challenge. I feel like I have failed a bit, but I hope that through this I will be able to handle my new horse better. Thanks again!

I'm glad you came to that decision, even though I'm sure it was difficult for you.

There's another horse out there for you, one that will make you happy and that you won't be frightened of. Not only that, but out there somewhere is the perfect owner for your mare.

First horse? Wow, of course your overwhelmed! You didnt fail her! You are wise enough to know when you cant help her, and that is more than ALOT of people can say, and that means you didnt fail. Getting a horse that fits for you will help you learn the behavior easier and your reactions to them will develop. You did a good job tho. HUGS!

There is just as much horse sense as ever, but the horses have most of it.

Thanks! It breaks my heart to hear someone you know genuinely cares and wants to try being in over their head and you cant help... There are so many people out there who know how to train, but dont give two winks about the horse.

You cared about her. She probably needed that most of all.
